Generally sorting state of grid columns is just for visual purposes - will not sort your data. If you want have sorting synchronized between the view (grid) and your model you can use ColumnSortDescriptor.
Regarding the clearing of the SortDescriptors, please try GridView.SortDescptors.Clear().
I hope that this is helpful.
